That’s So Gay…!

How many times we’ve heard people, and not only teenagers, mentioning “That is so Gay” referring to something bad, of little taste, something wrong or not ideal?

Gone are the days when the word gay was used to describe something simply joyous… :O(

Well, the campaign ThinkB4YouSpeak (http://thinkb4youspeak.com/) was born to tackle such the issue of teens using such expression in a negative way through the use of endorsements from Hilary Duff, Wanda Sykes and others in attempt to let them know it’s not a good thing to say.

Print ads attack the faggot and dyke and other elements of the campaign take on queer, cougar, tranny, lesbos, dick, geek, nuts, cherry and more.

Part of the campaign urges people to create their own videos on the topic and you can get involved following this link http://thinkb4youspeak.com/GetInvolved/

The website also gives loads of educating material for parents and school teachers to educate their children and pupils on the delicate subject

Also, if students register at https://www.studentorganizing.org/login/index.cfm they can download loads of informations and tools to start their own pledge

Get involved!
